Details:

Since the late 1960s, lesbian experimental filmmaker Barbara Hammer has restlessly challenged the limits of the visible, pushing against the formal, social, and sexual boundaries of cinema. This program of films (including newly restored prints) showcases Hammer’s ability to translate embodied experience through expressive techniques of montage, superimposition and animation. Includes Dyketactics (1974), Sync Touch (1981), Vital Signs (1991), and others. Curated by KJ Relth and Mark Toscano.

In person: UCLA Film & Television Archive programmer and curator KJ Relth
